MVS
I have 1.5 years experience on IBM mainframe MVS, in India.
Recently, I'm looking for a job in Dubai. The last day, I got a call from a leading IT company. In the interview they asked me if I can work on AS/400.
I have no idea whether I can work on AS/400 if I have experience in MVS. Please help.

    You should tell them no. The architecture is different that on a mainframe

    Based on company requirements you can decide. I am an AS400 programmer. First they trained me in IBM Mainframes. AS there is an urgent requirement in AS400 they cross trained me in AS400 just for 15 days. Here COBOL/400 is very similar to Mainframes COBOL. So this has no problem. But You need to have basics of other languages used in AS400 like CL/CLP/RPG/RPGLE. Have a Great Day NAN

    You can work on anything/do anything if you make it so. The more important question is: What do you want to do?

    its totally based on your confident. the thing is if the job is for developer profile then you can easily graps the things. its just about syntax changes between mainframe and as400.
